    So. Much. Testosterone. Was this really made in 2018?

    I get the impression that this is an unintentional homage to Heat, made by a video game aficionado who doesn’t know that Mann’s film was a huge inspiration for GTA V.

    ½

    Look, mondo-films are terribly hard to rate because of what they are; proto fake news. They are fascinating in their crassness and shamelessness, at times quite entertaining in their ridiculousness, but often not pleasant to watch because of their exploitation of racism and phobia of anything that isn’t heterosexual mom-and-pop sex. 

    So while I would recommend anyone that has an interest in Italian-genre cinema to get through at least one mondo (not necessarily this one), know what you’re getting into. This is the absolute nadir of “documentaries”, right up there with Dienesh D’Souza-garbage, but just bellow obvious propaganda films.

    ★★½

    Ready Player One makes me feel sorry for anyone who's, against their will, had to listen to me talk at length about Suikoden-lore or X-Men continuity.

    Sorry.

    ★★★★

    Hey, I came for the weird Roscharch-shape in the water and what the reviews promised was a “Lovecraft-flavored cult film”. But people seem hellbent on trying to convince me that I’m just the worst and didn’t understand what REALLY was going on since I haven’t seen (let alone heard of) Resolution

    I had a pretty good time with this eerie little headscratcher anyway, so screw you guys.
